A successful and growing Rotherham business has 25 full-time vacancies to offer jobseekers across the Dearne.

The Contact Hub is the brainchild of managing director Darren Millington, whose first mortgage business was hit by the recession.

In 2008 Mr Millington set up The Contact Hub from the garage of his Barnsley home, then built up to 50 plus staff, many of whom have worked with him for years.

He said: “I formed a panel of experts including debt management specialists, and loan and mortgage people among others. We work in regeneration but refer people on to specialists for help with specific issues.”

He added: “Every penny we make is re-invested. My previous company, Earth Mortgages, had massive overheads. This business has grown organically.”

Of future employees he said: “We want people who want a career and to stay with us for the whole journey.

“Unlike other call centres we work only from 10am to 6pm Monday to Thursday, then 9am to 5pm Fridays. I have a family and don’t believe people should be bothered in their homes during the evening. The work isn’t cold calling.”

Anyone interested in new positions at The Contact Hub should call Jayne on 0800 041 3000.
